First off, thank you all for the kind & encouraging words last week. I'm doing better now and trying to stay positive. As I go through this tough time, it has made me realize how blessed I am to have such loving and supportive people in my life. Which leads me to this guy, my boyfriend & best friend, who has been by my side for many years. This handsome young man is quite the catch if I do say so myself. He is smart, caring and will do just about anything for me. Even take outfit pictures for my blog!
If you know my boyfriend and me, we are complete opposites. He's from the country while I'm from the city. He is a man of little words while I am quite the talker. I like chocolate ice cream and he likes vanilla. Even though we are very different, one thing we have in common is fashion.
I may know a thing or two about women's fashion but men's fashion is a whole new world to me. Sadly, I don't know how to tie a tie or properly iron a dress shirt but I can make some observations about my guy's style. When I met this guy 4 years ago, the first thing I noticed was his style and quickly learned that he's got that cool Cali style down to the tee. Everyday, he lived in shorts and a tee. But after many trips to Seattle, I'm proud to say that he is slowly developing a Pacific Northwest style as well. He finally bought a couple warm jackets and a few good pairs of jeans. He's come a long ways from basketball shorts and t-shirts.
Side note: This shoot was by far my favorite! It was so much fun shooting with my boyfriend and playing photographer for the day. He probably won't admit it but I think this guy had fun as well! Who knows... maybe I'll persuade the boy to make this a semi-regular thing :)
